Official Cuban sources announce Rolling Stones concert in Havana at the end of March

Posted: 29-Feb-16 12:54

Sources from Cuba's Instituto Cubano de la Musica (Cuban Institute of Music) have recently confirmed that the much-anticipated Rolling Stones concert expected to take place in the island's capital sometime in March 2016 will indeed be happening by the end of the month at a future date still to be confirmed and announced soon. Whilst initially Rolling Stones' Havana concert was expected to be included in the rock band's Latin American tour, and many feared it wouldn't be happening at all when it wasn't included in the tour dates, it looks like it will be happening immediately after they wrap up things with the Latin American leg of their international tour.

Official Cuban sources announce Rolling Stones concert in Havana at the end of March

Spanish newspaper El Pais recently voiced what was published on Noticiero Cultural de Cuba’s Facebook account: the Rolling Stones are definitely coming to Cuba and they’re doing so before the end of March!

The hottest news to come our way since it was first revealed that the Rolling Stones wanted to play in Cuba, it looks like the legendary British band will finally make it to Havana as expected; just at the end of their Latin American tour, closing it off with a stellar public performance in the Cuban capital.

As many rumours and speculations started to circulate that the event might not be happening at all due to the fact that the band had failed to include it on the official tour dates for the Latin American leg of their tour, Noticiero Cultural Cuba investigated the issue and directly contacted the Instituto Cubano de la Musica (Cuban Institute of Music) to find out whether the concert would be taking place or not.

As it turns out they were informed that indeed The Rolling Stones would be treating Cuban fans to their rocking talent and would travel to the island at the end of their Latin American Tour to stage a massive public concerts, the likes of which the Cuban capital has never seen. Official Cuban sources further revealed that details for the performance were still in the organisational stages and negotiations were still being made on both parts.

They were able to confirm one thing though and that is where all the magic would be happening: on the grounds surrounding La Ciudad Deportiva, a centric area of Havana built for the development of sports and recreational activities.

The Instituto Cubano de la Musica also confirmed that the concert would be taking place at the end of March as a sensational finale to wrap up Rolling Stones’ Latin American “Ole Tour” the last performance of which has been announced for 17th March in Mexico City.

The actual date of the concert hasn’t been revealed yet as these details are still in talks but a further announcement is expected soon so watch this space!
